I have this movie, and the description at IMDb is accurate. Lavond (Barrymore) does pose as a (female) toymaker in the film, though.

The previous reviewer pointed out that I confused this clip with a later flick starring Bryant Halliday, which was uploaded earlier. The description has been corrected and the reviewer credited. Thanks again for bringing this to my attention.

writer's premise is incorrect
This film( a slew of horror films done by MGM in the 1930's ie, the mark of the vampire, Mask of Fu Manchu, and Devil Doll) is not about a ventriguolist but rather a toymaker who was cheated out of his job and has revenge on the people who cheated him (foreclosed on his toy shop. Excellant film by Tod Browning and good acting stretching of his thespian muscles by Lionel Barrymore.
